|Plot Summary of Payback: Fingerprints 7|
Rae still can't believe that Yana, the girl she thought of as her best friend, the one who stuck by her and helped her rescue her friend Jesse and made her laugh, was trying to kill her the whole time. How could someone be so nice to her and so fun to be around and totally hate her? Rae hates herself for rationalizing Yana's behavior, but can't help but wonder what she would have done if she were in Yana's place...
Yana had finally managed to escape from Aiden Matthews and was determined to fix her mistake. Someone was going to pay for her mother's death and, thanks to Aiden, she knew it wasn't Rae's mom, but that didn't make her mother any less dead. Yana returns to the Wilton Community Center and starts trying to find out what really happened. The first thing she discovers is that she can't use her powers on anyone there, so she has to play along with the crazy Cascone woman in charge and pretends that she just wants to learn more about her powers.
Rae is totally freaked when she learns that Yana has escaped, but she has Anthony to lean on and she has to help Mandy, the daughter of another one of the group members who was still learning to deal with her powers. Besides, Anthony worried about Yana more than enough for the both of them. So both of them were stunned when they found out that Yana believed them and that she was going after the committee in charge of the experiments. Yana can't believe that Rae is willing to forgive her so easily for trying to kill her and keeps her distance. The only one who seems to be able to help her now is Sam, another G-2 or second generation psi-power enhanced person, who has little left to loose since he is so close to dying anyhow...
This was just a great book. I think it was one of my favorites in the series because all of the information is starting to make sense and the G-2s are finally ready to take some action and stop others from being experimented on. The author keeps introducing cool new characters while keeping the old ones and big problems, such as how to keep the committee from killing them all, mixed in with smaller ones, like Marcus hating Anthony for taking Rae away from him. It was great to see more of Jesse and Mandy and I think that I'm going to really like Sam because he can totally kick Yana's butt! Make sure that you read the first 6 books in the series, though, or you won't appreciate the story as much. Can't wait for another book to come out!
